Alan Warren Knives Milo’s Pick Of The Week

As the days get longer many of us will be thinking about camping with the family and friends and about that knife we wished we had last year. Today Milo has been all over the Alan Warren knife case as if he had something in mind. The discussions around here at The Gun Room Inc. today have been revolving around camping and African safaris. No matter how well you plan for any adventure there always seems to be a lack of a good knife when you get to your destination and need one. This writer attributes this lack of an edge to the fact that people go cheap or are too tactically focused when it comes time to pick up a knife.

Knives and metallurgy have come a long ways since the dawn of the iron age and makers exploit the latest technology in some proven shapes and designs from centuries of bushcraft. Alan Warren has been creating custom knives for years that have been described as functional high art. Keeping and edge and looking good are one thing but form and function is where the rubber meets the road and Alan Warren Knives are the pinnacle of custom knife art.

Often when commissioning a custom knife from Alan Warren you’ll be faced with the inevitable year long wait because let’s face it, he’s a popular guy and his knives are sought after. That being said we’re very lucky here at The Gun Room Inc. because we have a large selection of Alan Warren knives on hand. Hunters, campers, collectors all come and get their Alan Warren Custom Knives from us because there isn’t a one year plus wait.

Yes you’ve probably dreamed of owning one if you’re into edged instruments of art. Some people call Alan’s knives tools, others call them weapons, here at The Gun Room Inc. we call them art.

If you’re in the know and have been following Alan’s endeavors in magazines or in the world wide web of who’s it-what’s it then you know Alan Warren knives are very hard to get. Alan takes great pride in his knives and all of them are one of a kind that’s made for work.
Some people put them in a display case, other people like this writer use them in the field and pass them on to our sons and daughters.

If you are a big game hunter then you know the axiom of carrying several knives to get the dirty work finished. The other high quality knives lose their edge before the work is done, on an elk for example, so you use a second or even a third to finish it up. People who actually use their Alan Warren knives only use the one, the line between art and science has been merged into the pinnacle of heat treatment hardness VS toughness VS form and function. If you have waited a year or more to get an Alan Warren knife and got your hopes real high, you weren’t disappointed. Never a complaint other than waiting for Alan to catch up with orders. He doesn’t rush he takes his time and turns out the best in blades period.
I would say check out his work at a show, but he doesn’t go to any. Alan doesn’t advertise, he just makes fine knives for a lucky few.
